Subject [users@httpd] proxypass behavior question
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2002 15:22:37 GMT

I have a server with a virtual host, which has a DNS CNAME alias listed
as a ServerAlias.  (Apache 1.3.26 on HP-UX 10.20); here's the virtual
host slice:

    ProxyVia On
    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /

The desired behavior is that visitors go to
'' and, although they're technically
connected to 'toto', they always see 'emeraldb' in their location line
on the browser.

This works fine, *EXCEPT* that when I attach a path to the end of the
URL, the underlying server exposes itself, only in IE, not in Netscape
or Mozilla:

Visitor types
Location shows

This does not happen at the top level:

Visitor types
Location shows

My reading of the ProxyPass documentation indicates that the redirect
path applies to all levels below, so that '/' ought to capture '/entry/'
and so forth.

What am I missing?  Is this a fixable problem, or do I wait for MS to
patch IE (hah!), or...?
